Since the beginning of 2014, Issaquah police officers have responded to 40 vehicle break-ins.
In many cases, owners had left their vehicles unlocked, according to a news release from the city.
Thieves can get into cars through unlocked doors or open windows, and then make off with valuables in only a few seconds.
Prime targets include shopping center parking lots, residential neighborhoods, parks and schools, because a prowler can hit many vehicles in a short time.
